Besides encouraging more renewable electricity generation, improved energy storage technologies have several benefits, including a more efficient grid that is unaffected by disruptions and less carbon dioxide emissions because the electricity will be greener.
We are currently being encouraged to make the transition over to electric and hybrid vehicles, but just what effect will this have on traditional fuel sources? Lookers, who offer a variety of car servicing plans, explore what the future of fuel looks like for the UK.
By definition then, VPPs are an attempt at whole-systems thinking; looking to combine DERs in such a configuration that they're greater than the sum of their parts.
Given how well the industry has weathered the solar tariffs enacted by the Trump administration in early 2018, and how the costs to install just keep falling, it seems certain that solar is ready for its moment in the spotlight.
Nevada led the renewable energy pack by voting in favor of Question 6, with 59 percent of voters approving the measure. Known as the Renewable Energy Standards Initiative, it will require Nevada to source at least 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. Sven Lindström, CEO of Swedish solar energy technology leader Midsummer, gives us his insights as to what developments we can we expect from the solar and renewable energy sectors in 2019
Despite uncertainty about federal tax reform effects and a spate of new import tariffs, strong fundamentals continue to underpin wind and solar growth and supported growth in 2018. And these are buoyed by the 3 enabling trends of emerging policies...
The time is right to amp-up blended renewable energy and energy storage solutions dedicated to solely power our infrastructure.
Renewable energy has now reached a point where it can compete with fossil fuel technologies, regardless of subsidies, according to Ethan Zindler, head of Americas at Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). This reality will play out in 2019
These are some of the alternative energy sources we probably didn't know because we may never have bothered to learn about them. However, as the sources are now available or will be available soon it is essential for us to understand them and make the best use of them
Thermophotovoltaics (TPV) is a method of converting heat to electricity using infrared light as an intermediary. Combustion heats an emitter to incandescence and the resulting thermal radiation is converted to electricity by a photovoltaic cell.
Solar resources will need to provide firm, flexible energy commitments even when the sun goes down, as well as critical grid services like frequency regulation and spinning reserves to stabilize the grid.
Energy sprawl is the product of the total amount of energy produced annually and the land-use concentration of production. Basically, this means the amount of energy that can be produced in a given amount of space.
Pulling the Strings: a Look at the Latest Trends in Utility Solar Farm Designs and How Their Efficiency Can Be Improved
As energy costs increase and governments offer incentives for increased use of renewable energy, utilities are building more large solar farms, and pushing to increase their efficiency.
Some of the notable advancements that have come to the fore include solar skins, solar roof tiles, floating solar farms, the latest solar mounts, and so on.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
